Antique Italian Pillow Sham,Linen, Lace
SOLD, Thank You!

This is the smallest of pillow cases offered from an Italian trousseau made for the Senorina Aurea (meaning "golden one") .This creamy linen is so luxurious,very cold to the touch and it shimmies as only fine antique linen can do! It is embellished with rows of drawnwork and hemstitching,and a 8.5" scroll with Aurea highlighted by cutworked olive leaves. I've only begun to imagine the work that must have gone into even one of Miss Aurea's trousseau pieces, let alone how magnificent the whole collection must have been!. O.K. and then there's the Lace...4" wide scallop of made lace attached by tiny hand stitching at each end of the pillow . This is a slip in style cover,with each end open,joined by one french seam at the back.Will fit regular American pillow, measures 24" X 16" not including 8" of lace. The condition is perfect! Some of these photos have been darkened fo detail. Watch for more from this trousseau!
